Wolves could have potentially destructive right flank as club sign Nelson Semedo

Nelson Semedo is officially a Wolves player.

The Portuguese full-back has completed a move to Molineux from Barcelona on a three-year deal, with the option for a further two years, with Sky Sports reporting the fee to be worth £29 million.

The 26-year-old becomes Nuno Espirito Santo’s sixth signing of the window, after Matija Sarkic (already loaned out), Fabio Silva, Vitinha, Fernando Marcal and Ki-Jana Hoever.

Semedo has already offered some comments upon joining the club, telling supporters what they can expect from at Molineux.

He said: “They can expect a modern right-back, who likes to attack. I can bring the team pace, speed. I like to go forward and come back. They can expect a lot of work and a lot of ambition.”

Semedo will replace Matt Doherty at right wing-back, meaning the shackles can now be dropped from Adama Traore and, potentially, a very exciting new combination can be allowed to blossom.

Wolves’s right flank could terrify

With Semedo now confirmed, tnat should be the end of Traore operating a right wing-back.

He should now play as the slightly tucked-in right forward, with the pacy Semedo offering the overlap.

That pairing down the right side could be utterly destructive for Premier League left-backs and is certainly something Nuno should consider.

Perhaps Daniel Podence could switch to the left in order to allow for the combination.
